GOOD NIGHT! Gilbert Burns KOs Jason Saggo in the second round! https://t.co/k7NedgSY1j2017-9-17 00:25:09
Gilbert Burns was once one of the top prospects in the UFC, but the talented Brazilian had been inconsistent in recent years, going 3-2 inside the Octagon.
He got some shine back on Saturday.

Damn that was a vicious KO #UFCPittsburgh2017-9-17 00:20:05
Burns uncorked a devastating overhand right before the end of the second round to flatten Jason Saggo.
It was a walk-off KO at 4:55 of the second round.

Burns now improves to 5-2 in the UFC. First knockout win in his UFC career too #UFCPittsburgh2017-9-17 00:23:44
The knockout puts Burns back in the win column and gives some hope that he can live up to his past potential. Saggo now suffers the first back-to-back losses in his career and will have his back against the wall in his next outing.
Burns' KO gave UFC Pittsburgh the electric start to a night of hard-hitting action from the Steel City.
